    We keep trying to like Izzy's, but the food is below standard, unappetizing, overcooked vegetables and we will not return.

    Our 2nd time there. We had a party of 8 and worried we'd get a a bad table, etc. Turned out we were about the only table in the room, a slow night for them. So we had great service, lots of attention. It was a birthday and from the hostess on the birthday person was noted and congratulated over and over. Even their name on the menu. Good food, most of us did the Prix Fix menu and it was good. Love the look of the place and will go back.

    Even though this is a relatively new spot, that could not excuse the disappointment we experienced at our dinner. The mussels were good but we ordered a large little gem salad for almost $11 hoping to share and got what I thought was a small portion. Boy what a rip off!!! That should have been enough to be a family style salad. The special of the night, pistachio crusted halibut was dry and unappetizing. The meats, Izzy's supposed specialties, were passable. Don't even waste your time trying this place.

    Another great dinner at Izzy's . From the moment you are greeted at arrival the staff here treats you like their only mission is to provide you with a fantastic dining experience . Our service was great and the food was delicious . We had the pork chop (the caper sauce is fantastic) and the chicken . Roast chicken is available everywhere but not like this ! The white bean side is unbelievable .

    This was the 5th or 6th time we have dined at Izzy's in the last couple months and each time the food and the service have been outstanding . We have had many different items from the diverse menu and never been disappointed .The pastas,pork chops,meatballs and salad were delicious . The wait staff is always friendly ,very professional and helpful with their suggestions . We are lucky to have such a great place in Alamo , it's long overdue .

    Our party of 4 enjoyed the prixe fix menu, with Salmon, Chicken and Gnocchi. All were excellent. The spaghetti squash was delicious. No complaints about the food or wine, place is a bit noisy and wasn't even full.

    Party of three and everyone loved their meal. I tried a bite of everything and couldn't decide which I liked best. Highlights - the ice cream cone dessert and the sweet sixteen wine list along with the different pour sizes! We'll be going back soon!

    Actually, quite elegant for a neighborhood hangout. Standout service, good overall menu, and a snappy happy hour. Clearly one of the best bars and bar areas in this area. Wish they would bring back the roasted squid.

    We went to the bar shortly after it opened, a few months back, and weren't allowed to sub on the cheese plate. It would mess up the symmetry of their cheese ordering. More recently we had dinner. We asked for the pork chop medium (comes medium well) and no sauce. The waiter suggested sauce on the side, and we said fine. It came smothered in sauce. Next version was way overcooked, which the waiter somehow guessed. Margherita pizza had cold mozzarella cheese and after asking for more oven time it came back little better. But, I think they care, and I think they'll get it down. The ambitious menu, if properly executed, will be good. Waiter was great, and it's a nice space. So keep at it guys, and give us the kind place Alamo needs.

    Upon entering, it kind of has a casino restaurant feel with the brightly lit bar and TVs. There was a good crowd in both the bar and restaurant, and a lot of energy. Our sampling of the menu was not extensive, but what we had was adequately prepared and presented. Service was attentive and the kitchen seemed to be working smoothly. It is nice to have an option in Alamo, but the atmosphere could be more intimate if they perhaps turned down the lights some.

    The food was good, service was average, décor seemed a bit to sterile, noise level was high. Not energetic high just very loud in the bar area almost impossible to carry on a conversation the noise level carried into the restaurant. it felt more like a cafeteria.
